Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
TV worked fine the last time used. Now when I turn it on it makes the usual 'click' sound, the green LED lamp indicator comes on (as it usually does when powering on) for about 1 second, then the TV turns off.
Assuming it was the lamp I replaced the bulb with the one I had previously removed from the set and stored for just such an emergency (replaced previous bulb because I had to replace a damaged screen and the bulb was a few years old, not because bulb was burned out. Prevention is better than repair). The problem persists. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Samsung is notorious for having bad color wheels in their DLPs. Well lets just say they are like toasters, they only last a certain amount of time. If the color wheel isn't spinning or is broken, the set will power down almost immediately after you hit the button, you may not even hear the entire fire up jingle. Check the wheel, if you can see the bulb light up for that split second. Actually, check it whether the bulb lights up or not.
